've heard this kind of talk before. but america is a different country. voters are rejecting 40 years of gop scare tactics. voters are supporting the obama administration's move to end severe mandatory sentences for low-level nonviolent drug offenders. of course, over at fox, they don't get it. >> they're not pot smokers. they're not pill poppers. >> wait a second. 50%. but the thing, what if the kid has a drug problem? >> then you get the kid to rehab or lock him in the basement or do what you have to do. that's what parents do. >> who thinks that one of these elderly people who have been in prison for a mandatory minimum sentence, that they're going to get out and they're not going to be on public assistance? of course they are. >> so we should keep people in prison to keep them off public aid? we should just lock up people with drug problems. this kind of demonizing and fearmongering is really nothing new for the right. it goes all the way back to president richard nixon. >> america's public enemy number one in the united states is drug abuse. in order to fight and defeat this enemy, it i
defined by what you lost, by what you can't do. you've inspired america with what you can do. maybe you lost your sight but you can still see the truth that our disabled veterans make extraordinary contributions to our country every single day. maybe you lost an arm but you still have the strength to pick up a friend or neighbor in need. maybe you lost a leg but you still stand tall for the values and freedoms that make america the greatest nation on earth. [ applause ] i think of the wounded warrior who spoke for so many of you when he said your life will never be the same but that doesn't mean you can't go on to do amaze things with the second thing you've given. i think of wounded veterans across america and how they used that second chance. volunteering in communities. building home, being a mentor to local kids, showing up after tornadoes, after hurricane sandy to help folks rebuild. i think of the wounded warriors who reached out to the survivors of the boston marathon bombing with a simple message, we stand with you. i think of all the inspiring wounded warriors that michelle and

, and will be replaced by al jazeera america. in our time here in "the war room" we have focused on important political stories from our march goes on series, to controlling the playing of gun violence in this country and the immigration reform debate that continues to rage on. joining me now inside "the war room" are two of my current colleagues and friends, john fugelsang, the host of "viewpoint, who has the second best hair on this network, and my very close friend, "the young turks" studio in los angeles cenk uygur. thank you both for joining us in "the war room" one last time. >> thank you, michael. >> thank you. >> michael: john, i'm sgoorth with you what do you think the impact that current tv has had on the progressive discussion if any at all? >> well, that's a good question. i have to say it was positive, if not necessarily profound. while this whole experience has proven that liberals are very good at capitalism, i'm very happy for mr. gore, i don't think network had the chance to make the proper impact it could have had had it had proper promotions behind it. i think if we would have had a
alone america. obama, call him a liberal or what you want but he was not on the fringe. he was down the plate of the democratic party. you have guys who are both not ready and also taking really wacko bird positions to -- >> at the same time, a lot of that has to do with the fact where you live and what your views are. there are a lot of people in middle america that don't see ted cruz or rand paul or marco rubio out of the mainstream. a lot of people. as many people don't think they are, as people don't think barack obama is. i mean barack obama -- >> they're not even in the mainstream of the republican party. barack obama was in the mainstream of the democratic party. he may have been inexperienced. >> when these guys came in 2010 they are in the mainstream of the republican party. look at the fact that in 2010 it's not like there were a couple people that snuck. >> office. republicans won the largest legislative landslide on the state and national level i think probably in the 20 -- in a century. it was a remarkable victory for them. the problem that some of them don't understand
in time all america can really do is ask for restraint on both sides. certainly keep our fingers crossed that the bloodshed will end and that the military will respect human rights. >> if we wait and we keep our fingers crossed and we ask for restraint, u.s. officials as we understand until the very last minute before this crackdown were reaching out to their counterparts in egypt asking for that very restraint but they were ignored. so do we have an influence? keeping fingers crossed doesn't seem like it is going to cut it anymore. >> no, it's tragic we don't have greater influence. about the only thing we have right now is the threat of cutting out military aid. quite honestly, a number of us in the senate were willing to give the president the flexibility prior to the august recess. when we come back in september if events don't improve dramatically, i don't think there is going to be any choice than to basically force the hand of this administration and cut off military aid to egypt. >> should he have made that call today? should hathat have been the decision now? >> first, i don't t
that brought sweeping republican gains two years later. america seems to be left with the status quo. the gop kept control of the house. the division between the parties is as sharp as ever. that doesn't mean it wasn't worth the ride. we are treated to spicy anecdote like the empty chair in tampa. balls says top romney advisers were sickened. he walked out of the room and threw up. there was insight into the mind set of an obama team ready to engage in hostilities. case and point, jim messina said my favorite philosopher is mike tyson. he said everyone has a plan until you punch them in the face. my job is to punch them in the face. it was fought out in small ways. if 2008 was inspiring, 2012 was negative and nasty. joining us is dan balls, author of "collision 2012." dan, thanks so much for joining the program and congrats on the book. >> thank you. glad to be here. >> we are happy to have you. the future of elections in america, after 2012, given the prolonged and insane nature, what do you think each party learned and how do you think it's going to affect 2016? >> you speak of long campaig

of the united states of america. >> the conservative family leadership summit ended yesterday in iowa after party leaders all took the stage. donald trump, who was once again considering his own presidential bid, was also there in iowa. this is what he said about the 2012 election. >> i like mitt romney personally. i think he's a very good guy. i don't know what the hell happened with his campaign. i just don't get it. that was an election that couldn't have been lost. it couldn't have been lost. >> donald trump in iowa. let's get right to the brain trust. goldie taylor, and the managing editor of the goldie taylor project. and also an msnbc contributor and political editor for the grio. and the daily caller writes for u.s. news and world report. good to have all of you with us on a sunday afternoon. goldie, the fallout from the nsa leaks by edward snowden, cancellation of talks with russia's president vladimir putin. it has put u.s. relations with russia under a microscope. senator john mccain said this morning that be russia has no interest in maintaining a good relationship with the unit

as needing to protect our allies, our bases in the region. this is something that is going to require america's attention and hopefully the entire international community's attention. >> in egypt today supporters of ousted president mohamed morsi took to the streets in defiance of orders by egyptian authorities to end their protest. meantime, in his interview with cnn, president obama also addressed the possibility of cuts off u.s. aid. >> the aid itself may not reverse what the interim government does, but i think what most americans would say is that we have to be very careful about being seen as aiding and abetting actions that we think run contrary to our values and ideals. what we're doing right now is doing a full evaluation of the u.s./egyptian relationship. >> nbc's ayman mohyeldin joins us live from cairo. ayman, good afternoon, or good evening for your. we know the protesters took to the streets today. have we seen any clashes? >> reporter: well, the numbers today and the protests today in general were a big test for the muslim brotherhood. obviously in the last couple of weeks the
because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing america, you said russia. not al qaeda. in the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> white house -- >> boy, that's a cute line. it's just so dead wrong. it's not even funny. and every single country that's causing problems right now, whether it's iran, whether it's syria, of course we've got the snowden issue now, it is russia at the center of it and russia has now made fools of two presidents, nicole, yours and barack obama. >> right. i mean, look, he's a shirtless thug and he's someone who really has made a fool of this president, who i think earnestly intended to re-set relations but naively thought that was possible. >> can i say, donny twitched when -- >> shirtless? >> look -- >> when the phrase shirtless thug, because -- no, no, willie. >> he did. >> when you said shirtless thug, it was as if donny was walking down like the streets, the mean streets of southampton. >> shirtless. >> that shirtless thug, he said he was go
disagree with his lifestyle choices, he's out there protecting the united states of america, he deserves your respect. >> and you know what, guts. that's what this all boils down to. what we're all talking about. it's just speaking out. mike allen, mike, we started with you. i was just talking about since 2006, republicans have grimaced and hidden in the corners and they've -- oh, what are we going to do about -- these people on talk radio, these people on cable news that are saying these things that are driving off the very swing voters we need to get elected to the white house again. >> yeah. >> guts. they don't have guts to speak out against the treex emmists. mitt romney never had the guts to speak out against the most extreme elements in his party. and he lost in part because he followed extremists down a rabbit hole in iowa, in a caucus process, on immigration, and he got slaughtered among hispanic-americans because of it and he got beaten in other areas too because he never spoke out and had that famous bill clinton sister soldier moment that by the way conservatives cheered when
cities in america. you may think you live there already. we'll tell you the truth from a new survey. >>> hello, everyone. it's high noon here in the east and 9:00 a.m. out west. welcome to "weekends with alex witt." the manhunt is over but a big mystery remains which led police from southern california to the wilderness of idaho. the abductor, james dimaggio, is dead and hannah anderson is alive and well. joe, what do you know? anything new that you're learning? >> reporter: alex, this morning we did get some new information about how they were able to locate dimaggio and hannah anderson. teams were up in helicopters searching the wilderness for any sign of them. near a campsite near morehead lake, they spotted james dimaggio and hannah anderson. they ended up landing and fbi apths hiked 2 1/2 hours before they were able to get to that campsite before there was a confrontation with dimaggio. all we know is that in the end an fbi agent shot and killed dimaggio. we're told a special fbi team is coming out to idaho to conduct an investigation on that shooting. they will be interviewing

movement and has created today the most deeply and reliably republican region in america. the story is more complicated in arkansas. since 1964 it has voted for more republican presidential candidates than democrats. but it also gave us bill clinton, still has a democratic governor today. since reconstruction, only a grand total of three republican governors. as recently as three years ago three of the four house members and both u.s. senators from the state were democrats. arkansas didn't vote for barack obama in 2008. if hillary clinton, that's former arkansas first lady arkansas hillary clinton had been the democratic nominee, there's a good chance she would have carried the state. arkansas is not tom state like this. it's representative of a very specific area of the country, a cluster of rural states around apalacha and the ozarks, states that did not abandon the party with the same ferocity as the deep south. you've got arkansas, missouri, kentucky, tennessee, west virginia, even louisiana. these are states that al gore had a chance to win in 2000. if he had won just one of them, it w
